In a time where modern rock music is so segmented and record labels put little to no effort in marketing new bands, it’s refreshing to hear a band like Planta. Their sound is as diverse as the members of the band – cosmic, bluesy and sometimes pure rock – and yet you get the sense that each song is meticulously crafted. Unlike the typical verse/chorus/verse/chorus structure of most modern rock bands, Planta allows the mood and structure to flow naturally, making for an unpredictable experience. Most importantly, whether you’re grooving to the catchy riffs of “Pantalla de Piel” (Skin Screen) or the soaring solo on “Corazon Inconsciente” (Unconscious Heart), you’re listening to enjoyable, quality tunes…no thanks to any record label.
